We stayed at Tidewater last week for vacation and we loved our stay. We have no complaints. Very conveniently located to Pier Park, yes, we walked there for nightlife. Close to Winn Dixie for groceries. Resort had shopping carts to help bring groceries up to the condo. The beach chairs out front were pricey!!! Loved the two pools and attached... More

I visited this beautiful resort in December of 2011. I rented a 1 bedroom condo for $80.00 night! Great . The place was nearly empty! I stayed again in July of 2012 & the resort was filled to capacity. Main problem: storm rolled in around 1:00pm: everyone ran inside and All were standing, soaked, waiting on elevators. Terrible system /... More

We stayed on the 22nd floor recently. The wait for elevators was up to 1.5 hours at times. I literally got tired of waiting and walked down to the beach from the 22nd floor, carrying my chairs and cooler. The building is simply too tall and accommodates too many people due to the owner's greed. It is built directly on... More

My husband and I stayed at the Tidewater Beach Resort in unity 2604 over the Labor Day weekend. Our condo was great. It was clean, open and airy with a great view from the 26th floor. I have nothing but good things to say about the condo unit. Our problem as was so many others was the elevators in this... More

We rented through an individual condo owner. Our room was on the 13th floor on the east end of the building. As we were there in late summer, the crowds were down. The parking deck never got as much as half full. The property was well maintained and clean. The location is fantastic. It's just a little west of Pier... More

Just returned from a week at Tidewater Beach Resort. The facility is new and well-maintained. It is close to Pier Park and many restaurants, has a small gift shop and grill and more. We rented from condo owners who were easy to work with. Our unit was clean and nicely decorated and quite affordable. We loved watching dolphins, rays and... More

We rented a condo in Panama through VRBO for my son's baseball tournament. The condo was GREAT. Clean, beautiful view, and full on amenities. The resort elevators however were HORRIBLE. The wait was insane. There are 7 elevators but it still was not enough for the demand. When you left your condo you had to make sure you had everything... More

We rented on VRBO (room 1518), and the whole thing went very smoothly. I HIGHLY recommend this unit, as it was very clean, well stocked, and had a breathtaking view. This room is a corner unit, and has a 270 degree view, so you see the gulf, the pier, Pier Park, and you can even see Back Beach Rd from... More

rented through VRBO, 209513. IT WAS AMAZING!! All of the complaints I read regarding the elevators were correct BUT you have to realize you will have a wait when there are 30 floors and it is summer vacation. There was only one time we had to really wait but I was at the beach and did not really care. I... More
